I had every intention of keeping her, and I was loving her all over again. I had the exhaust and petrol leak fixed on Saturday just gone!! However, something else came up which I really fancied.

Teaser to follow :halo

Defo not a corrado ( they didnt come with drum brakes ;) )

Well judging from the photos, it has a black bonnet and running on steelies. Must be a smallish engine due to the drum brakes.

Is it a Polo?

I'll post some pictures up later hopefully.

I'm gonna service the Golf now and have a crack at fixing the rev counter/oil light issue. I'm off to Ireland again tomorrow so hoping to get some pictures up of my new ride, " Rusty".

Polos are so maleable, Can't wait to see what you got planned! And lets us know if you're about Mullingar.

Cheers mate!! I'm usually in Sliigo (Ballymote), Roscommon and Mayo (Ballaghaderreen) when I'm across the water so not a million miles away from Westmeath. I might take a drive down next time I'm in Sligo :tu

Unfortunately/fotunately , I'm in Belfast this time (what a time to go!!!!!!) & I won't be crossing the border this time to visit family :( but might look you up next time!!!

Got some pictures I can post of the Polo (not all mine) , just been a very busy bee with the Golf today. Failed its MOT on window washers not working, number plate lights not working and a split in the CV boot. I traced the number plate fault back to 6 broken wires in the rubber boot (???) in the top left of the boot lid. Re-soldered them then fixed the window washer problem. I stripped the washer bottle, cleaned it out, stripped and cleaned out the pipes and nozzles....still not working :( Then I found the line was kinked where it bends from the passenger window to the bottle! Fixed that as well. The best bit was fixing the rev counter/oil light flashing problem (which is apparently a common fault with mk3's). Not a bad day really, just a long one! Pics to shortly follow of the Polo.
